    I am trying to install this security update. I've tried through Microsoft
    Update and from the Download Center. It downloads fine in both cases.
    However, when it tries to install, there appears to be an issue with the
    syntax for the msiexec command, as it brings up the msiexec command
    reference. Then, the install fails with Error Code: 0x667. Looking at the
    windowsupdate.log file, I get the following information:

    ** START ** Agent: Installing updates [CallerId = MicrosoftUpdate]

    It appears there is a bug in the update installer. Anybody encounter the
    same thing? Are there any workarounds? Thanks for any help.

    I had the same problem. Try this:
    Go to %SystemRoot%\SoftwareDistribution\Download.
    Find there a file of avg. 14 mb size.
    It is a simple archive. Unpack it and launch VS80sp1-KB947738-X86-INTL.msp.
    It was installed with no problems for me.
